Naples, FL (PressExposure) April 29, 2011 -- As Britain's Royal Family prepares for Prince William and his fiancée Kate Middleton's upcoming wedding, Danish jewelry sensation, Pandora, has created a limited edition Pandora Royal Wedding Charm to commemorate the occasion.
Hand-finished, this sterling silver charm is in the shape of a heart and features a blue spinel stone setting. The blue stone symbolizes the blue sapphire engagement ring given to Kate by Prince William, the same 18-carat and diamond sapphire engagement ring Prince Charles gave William's late mother, Princess Diana.
The sapphire has always been a way people have paid homage to and honored Princess Diana, which gives this exclusive Pandora charm even more significance. Since Prince William and Middleton's courtship began, Middleton has drawn many comparisons to the late Diana - in appearance, demeanor, upbringing (both commoners thrust into the royal spotlight), and philanthropy.
The back of the charm features the royal couple's initials "C & W" engraved in an elegant script. These exclusive charms will only be available from April 2011 through October and can only be purchased at Pandora stores. The new royal charm can be worn on all Pandora necklaces and bracelets, either alone or as part of a charm bracelet with matching beads. You can find the charm in stores throughout the U.S. and internationally.
Many Pandora jewelry stores worldwide have begun taking orders for this charm to prepare for a surge in purchases. The charm retails for $88.
If you're looking to pair the charm with other Pandora beads in a charm bracelet or necklace, the glass murano beads compliment the store perfectly. Try "Blue and Grey Wave" and "Pale Blue with Royal Blue Flowers." You can also try the "Blue Bead Ribbon" and "Glass Flowers for You Blue."
Other options for creating necklaces and bracelets include pairing the charm with sterling silver charms, including "Everlasting Love," "Forget Me Knot," and the "Forever Together Scroll." When pairing this charm with other beads, it is best advised to keep the complimenting beads small and simpler to let the Royal Wedding Charm take centerstage.
For spacers, you could add your own "diamond motif" by using "Bead Lights CZ" or you can stick with the sterling silver and hearts theme by using "Silver Heart Row" or "Heart Beats." For clips, go with the simple "Plain Silver." You don't want to have too much going on.
The beauty in Pandora's charm bracelets and necklaces is that you can custom-make and assemble them any way you choose, all for a look that is 100% uniquely you.
